Jordan’s Furniture to Temporarily Close All Stores

Boston-based retailer Jordan’s Furniture has announced all its stores will temporarily close in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, effective March 18.

“We decided to close all stores starting tomorrow, in the best interest of our customers and our employees,” said Eliot Tatelman, president. “The safety and health of both our guests and our J-Team is paramount.

In the past few weeks, we have taken all necessary steps and preventive measures to keep our stores clean and safe,” Tatelman added. “However, it became apparent during the last few days that the right thing to do is to simply close all stores until we, as a community and as a country, have a better idea about the coronavirus. These are unprecedented times that call for drastic actions to ensure the safety of everyone in our stores.”

Jordan’s Furniture will continue to monitor the ever-changing situation and follow the guidelines at the CDC and WHO, along with local and state governments. Customers can stay updated by visiting their website at Jordans.com.

This is big. Jordan's is making a huge sacrifice for the common good of not only their customers but the general population that could get infected from the spread of disease. Just how difficult is it to close stores--immense! The supply chain that feeds Jordan's is hard to shut down. Because of their size they are literally ordering millions of dollars of goods every week. These orders are in the pipeline and most cannot be stopped. Goods are arriving at their warehouse--truckloads every day--and with no deliveries the back-up can be unbelievable. This may spread to the entire Berkshire-Hathaway furniture network
in which case the repercussions will be heard around the world. I commend Jordan's for taking on this daunting task and I know they and the rest of us in the furniture industry are facing the challenge and focusing on survival and a strong recovery.
